Genesis 1-2 begins with nothing and a male God speaks the land, ocean, and heaven into existence. “Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together to one place, and let the dry land appear” (Genesis 164). In Christian culture, a man is of higher power than a woman. “And the Lord God said, ‘It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make a…

    speaker. The “Heavens” call out like a “Bell” and the speaker is the only one to hear it. The speaker is “but an Ear”, establishing a tone of incompleteness. Taken literally, the speaker is no longer complete and can do nothing but listen to the Heavens. The speaker then presents themselves as “some strange Race”. This in addition to “Silence” captures the isolation after death. If the “Heavens were a Bell” yet the speaker hears “Silence”, this implies that the speaker does not have a Heaven…
